Titan Raga's new campaign celebrates the beauty in women

Featuring Alia Bhatt, the brand taps into the notion of women uplifting one another through acts of kindness.

Titan Raga, renowned for its collection of timepieces, has featured Alia Bhatt in its latest campaign, ‘Beautiful Together.’ The brand, which consistently crafts narratives celebrating women, commends the remarkable women who support, enable, and uplift each other, embodying the essence of sisterhood.

The campaign's television commercial (TVC), now live, offers a poignant portrayal of sisterhood’s enduring bond. It reflects on beauty's evolving role—from historically fueling competition among women to now fostering a shared experience that encourages quiet yet substantial support. The campaign showcases various ways sisterhood flourishes today, from bonding over beauty hacks to collaborating in breaking barriers across fields.

Aparna Ravi, marketing head at Titan Watches, stated, “Raga has always pursued deep and meaningful narratives about women. ‘Beautiful Together’ aims to acknowledge a bond that often goes unnoticed—the profound strength and support found in women’s relationships with each other. Having Alia Bhatt, who perfectly embodies sisterhood's spirit, join us is exciting. We anticipate this campaign will resonate with our audience, encouraging them to honor the remarkable women in their lives.”

In the TVC, Alia Bhatt adopts a light-hearted tone as she interacts with various women. Her actions range from complimenting a stranger in an elevator to sharing a moment as she gifts a Raga watch to a friend, enhancing her look, and aiding another during a fashion mishap. The campaign radiates warmth and highlights the significance of female bonds. The voiceover, stating “Humaari khubsurati mein ek dusre ka haath hai” (our beauty is in one another's hands) emphasises beauty as a catalyst for camaraderie, comfort, and community among women.

Campaign's take: While the use of a celebrity is predictable and the advertisement isn't revolutionary, it is refreshing to see a campaign that empowers women to recognise the beauty in each other in a playful and light manner. Amidst plenty of media that pits women against each other, it is bold for a brand to actively promote this ethos. Alia Bhatt, young, fresh, and representative of the fashion zeitgeist and the "it girl" of the moment, is a great fit for this campaign. And like mentioned above, though nothing never-seen-before, the advertisement manages to put a smile on your face and convey a good message. With a nice watch at its center, the ad does what it needs to do: Touch heartstrings and remind you of the product in the process.
